senator michael rubio in an attempt to introduce different parts of our community to some of the issues of c-e-q-a by visiting projects which had some c-e-q-a problems. and with the acknowledgment that all the stakeholders would be brought to the table to review the issues and collaborate and come up with some mutually agreeable changes. but in reality as an architect having worked on large major projects and programs like the candlestick park renovations or youth guidance center renovationses or airport projects or muni railway projects, and as you have seen on any project that comes before you, there is a very detailed critical
protection. to finish, i'm party to the negotiations with senator rubio in the state capital working on c-e-q-a reform hopefully next year. what you are being asked to do today is a process to hasten the c-e-q-a [speaker not understood] will not be addressed as part of that process. what you're doing is important and it will have meaningful impact. thank you. >> thank you. >>> good afternoon, commissioners. my name is joan wood. i live in north beach. i'm a native san franciscan, third generation, actually. it was interesting that supervisor wiener seemed to be revealing that the main thing that has sent him into this litigation is the north beach library. it really made him crazy because we're still objecting -- we're on appeal now. even the judge that heard our lawsuit stated that the work of the north beach library is violating the city charter, but she still decided against us. it's food for thought. we're appealing and the same judge, she receives all the cases like this. i've noticed. so, we're not too optimistic. the city went ahead and started the work anyway. that's another clue
representative steinberg together with mr. rubio who has already apparently toured the city with spur about the state starting to address changes. and why not just streamline it so we don't have to go back and revise it and adjust it? i think it's all a question of efficiency and who participates in the discussion. from my personal experience sitting here where i sit, i would actually strongly advise that appeals are not filed early on when the first action is taken, but that they are filed when there is as much wrote et disclosure as there is possibly available. i have participated in the project which was heard in front of this commission over a time frame of ten years. that being treasure island. the first e-i-r on that project was probably file number 2004, 2005, only for the project to completely and totally transform itself even in the hearing, in the e-i-r hearing. there were design and major changes pushed through in the last five days. different documents were issued [speaker not understood] including during the hearing. there were substantive changes made. that applies to bayview
time. neil: do you think he runs again. >> i do not. neil: who do the think? >> 2016 rubio, and chris christie, a lot of people that a lot of big donors begged to run. neil: tom you are running? >> not yet. >> talk to me. >> when he come back, we have a ton of twitter followers, count john mccain, as one of them. we'lhe tweeted at me about me tt created a sensation.
marco rubio was asked about the age of the planet in a recent interview, he dodged it saying, i'm not a scientist, man. now televangelist pat robertson of all people is weighing in, but not in a way you might expect. we're going to have pat robertson back. pat robertson saying the earth is very, very old. we should believe the artifacts and the paleontology. >>> finally, a real about-face >>> finally, a real about-face for the guy who had the romney campaign logo tattooed on his face before the election in exchange for a $5,000 payment. when romney lost, he said he was keeping the tattoo anyway. you're going to lose your children and i believe in telling them the way it was. then he caught wind of romney saying the president won the re-election by giving gifts to minority voters. now he says, quote, it stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser. there's no dignity in blaming somebody else for buying votes and paying off people. i can't get behind that or stay behind that. well, a tattoo removal chain offered to remove the tattoo for free, and hartsburg is taking
, lieberman mccain and senator graham mold, taking more hawkish positions. you also see marco rubio playing another sort of somewhere between hawkish and moderate position that might go in some interesting ways. you'll also see bob corker who's taking a new position on the senate foreign relations committee, have the opportunity to do that, too. but, again, it does seem similarly to some on the democratic side that this is somewhat unclaimed territory and now that senator mccain is going to have something of a diminished role because he's no longer going to be the ranking republican on the armed services committee, could also arise new voices coming out. >> seeing that big list of republicans on the side, on the mostly democratic side on that afghanistan amendment today i thought was maybe a watershed moment. spencer ackerman, national security writer for "danger room" at wire.com. great to see you, spenc. >> thank you. >>> just ahead, i'll wholeheartedly endorse an idea pitched by a superconservative media watchdog guy who hates me. watch and believe. >>> most of what vice president biden
rubio, say we actually have to change the policy, not just the way that we're gift wrapping it. >> you know ted cruz and cruz is being raised as one of the new voices, new stars of the republican party. has he always been to the right? has he always been to where he is now? or is he a politician that public pressure and the way public leanings go, he will adjust? >> he is an ivy league-educated politician. i first met him back in 1999 where he was a prominent architect of compassionate conservative and then he saw the tea party taking off. he's very good at reading which way the wind is blowing that he still thinks that there's something to be made by harnessing him to the tea party. at least he believes and at least down in texas he doesn't believe it's over. >> molly, you were down there for the cruz speech. let me raise another speech to you. karl rove, he still doesn't get it. at a speech in kansas this week, he blamed republican losses on moderates and conservatives going after each other. listen to this. >> i was involved in a group called american crossroads. the worst volunteer
